So did Malmesbury air cadets, Corporals Tomas Talkowski, James Slade and Cadet Ben Bassindale, until they attended a one-day youth first aid course at 1304 (Chippenham) Squadron Air Training Corps, which was all it took to put them in ‘the know.’

There will be an Extraordinary Town Council meeting at 7pm TONIGHT at Malmesbury Town Hall. This meeting is open to the public, if you want to come along. The Town Council and Cll’rs from just outside the town are discussing possible contributions from both supermarket developers. (this does not mean that the Town Council are favouring either!) S106 Agreement is the formal term, but it may also be that a developer will contribute to the town in other ways. Options will be discussed. So if you want to hear first-hand, then do come along!
